Clydz is a lively New Brunswick destination with a subterranean atmosphere, reminiscent of a 1920's speakeasy. The freshly rose-petaled entrance is a prelude to a truly unique dining experience. At Clydz, the fare is anything but ordinary. The menu is comprised of "exotic" Contemporary American Cuisine, showcasing items such as kangaroo, ostrich, wild boar and python. Traditional favorites such as filet Mignon, scallops and duck are well worth the visit.

The cuisine is not the only element that sets Clydz apart from the rest. The trendy bar, enhanced by fish tanks and fireplaces, offers an extensive and adventurous martini and cocktail selection. Clydz own “private label” vodka was introduced fall ’11 with great success.

When making a reservation please keep in mind, tables will only be held 15 minutes past the reservation time. Due to high volume during dinner, an $18 food minimum per person is required. Reservations for cocktails only are not accepted.

What a amazing pre-theatre Valentine's dining experience! From the moment we entered the restaurant it was obvious that the customers satisfaction is a priority. Energy employee was warm and welcoming and accomodating!! I had some dietary restrictions and they accommodated every thing! Delicious meal, beautifully presented! We will be back!!

Too much noise from the staff, I would get thr brunt of the yelling, nd the placement of the items over my head was very distracting and annoying whenever someone would reach over my head.

Came here for Valentine’s Day and had such an amazing time. The food was incredible and spaced out perfectly. We drove over an hour to come try all of the exotic meats and it was well worth the drive. The food was delicious and reasonably priced. With our meal for Valentine’s Day, we each got a complimentary glass of champagne for toasting and a single rose as we left. I’ve already highly recommended this place to my family who also enjoys trying new foods. I will definitely be coming back.

They have a creative menu, with some unusual game meats. Portions not to large, not too small. Their kitchen is very consistent — no bad ideas that made it through the filter.

Table in the middle of the room even though we requested a table in the perimeter and our chairs kept getting bumped into. Python appetizer included only 2 pieces. Game tasting was good but quail had a heavy charcoal taste. Maybe I would try again but not on a Saturday night.

Me and my girlfriend came here on a Friday night. The bar was noisy, but the dining room area we sat at was great at blocking out most of the noise. The food here is fantastic and the service was great. Our waitress was very knowledgeable about where the food ingredients came from. The order in which the dishes came out was well thought out. The price is higher than most restaurants, but you get what you pay for, great quality food. I highly recommend.

Clydz was one of my go-to places when we wanted a good cocktail and atypical but well prepared meals (great game selection). However the last two trips while good were not enough to make me want to return ASAP. On the last trip the cocktails themselves were ordinary and the dishes somewhat uninspiring. The atmosphere is great and the place still has the nice prohibition vibe. Service could use a tune-up too.

Been there many times before and had wonderful meals and service. This time was not good. The service was poor. Had to ask for drinks, water and ice. Asked for a lime for my drink three times. Steak was rare when asked for medium. Order side pasta. Is was watery. Came back well. No manager came over to table. Unfortunately given the cost I would not go back.

This was our third dinner at Clydz. Our second visit was during Restaurant week, and the service was rushed and the food mediocre. We decided to try it again and were glad we did. The food was excellent ... especially the bison steak and the duck. The service was also excellent. Highly recommended for those seeking unique food well-prepared and excellent service.

My girlfriend and I were celebrating our anniversary by trying out a new place with a unique menu. We were not disappointed! From the incredibly attentive and friendly staff to the beautiful dining room, Clydz left nothing to be desired. They even set our table with rose petals scattered across it to help in our celebration! Great food, great wine, great experience! We will be back.
